Diane Filion Center for
Advancing Faculty Excellence

Get Launched!

Get Launched! is a development series created to introduce new faculty to UMKC's culture and mission, and to share important information to support new faculty.

Get Launched! New Faculty Development Series

Get Launched! will provide an overview of UMKC resources, policies and tools that support the learning environment, as well as development opportunities that fuel continual improvement in faculty experiences. Get Launched is just one of the many ways the UMKC invests in faculty success at UMKC. 

This program is open to full-time faculty in their first or second year at UMKC and attendance is expected. Most sessions will be held in person in the CAFE Space in Newcomb Hall on the Volker campus. There will be limited opportunity to participate virtually.

Participating in the Get Launched provides new faculty with the opportunity to collaborate with their colleagues and become familiar with UMKC community. Topics such as Course Design, Building your Teaching Portfolio, Student Support, Faculty/Student Engagement, Annual Evaluations and Developing your Research Program are presented in the Get Launched program.
